(From 2010 Vintage) The 2010 vintage comes fully-loaded with ripe red and black fruits and layers of sweet oak and spicebox, with just enough tannins to appeal to a broad range of folks, from jammy zin lovers to those who prefer more structured wines. It's big, flavorful, and satisfying.
(From 2011 Vintage) The wine has a dense red and black hue that is framed in vibrant crimson. Aromas of Bing cherry, espresso, roasted fig and vanillin oak accents are persistent. The entry is powerful and generous supported with lively acidity while flavors of ripe raspberry, pomegranate and wild berry fruit linger harmoniously. Soft, integrated tannin chains allow the wine to be approachable now and provides for a pleasant finish.
nice Zin. drank in Denver at Indulge Wine Bar with Peter Fatianow. bold, rich wine that was quite good. may not want to spend $35 for bottle vs. other buys.
maker claims alc by vol likely 16% or better. met at loh at grove spring jinx 2010
Big and bold.
nice. glad it was half price though. not worth the restaurant's $85
Great Zin...maybe my favorite. Need to try for the 3rd time...
